Expert Quotes:

comfortable and supportive seats
Car and Driver

Comfortable, supportive seats have enough settings to make most backsides happy.
Consumer Guide

The quiet, roomy interior looks upscale, but also conservative.
MSN Autos

Typical of Volvo, the seats are supremely comfortable; don't be surprised if your passengers nod off.
Automobile Magazine


In addition to a reputation for safety and longevity, Volvo has earned a name for itself in recent years for having excellent seats. You simply can't do much better than the perches in the S80; they're better than those in some sport sedans costing much more, and perfect for those of a wide range of sizes, thanks to all their adjustability; and they add to the S80's long-distance appeal.

Front seats also have optional heating and cooling with fan-driven ventilation, while the nicely contoured backseat is large enough for three petite folks or two American-sized adults (with enough headroom and legroom), and the climate-control system has vents built into the B-pillars for better comfort in back. The trunk is one of the smallest in this class, at just under 15 cubic feet, but it can be expanded by flipping forward the 60/40-split seatbacks.

Materials definitely go outside of luxury-car convention in appearance--but there's plenty to be happy with from inside; there's very little if any hard plastic up at eye level, and the leather upholstery is plush and luxurious.

The S80 rides neither as harshly and firmly as a sport sedan nor as softly as a comfort-oriented luxury sedan; most will probably appreciate how it feels comfortable enough, yet still relatively crisp and controllable.

 

 

Conclusion

The interior of the 2012 Volvo S80 has a combination of comfort, spaciousness, and refinement that make this sedan a great long-distance hauler.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
